james baker, mike barnicle, coming out, a guy from texas who's been a hunter his whole life. joe manchin, colin powell, stanley mcchrystal, ronald reagan came out in favor of an assault weapons ban. in fact, a lot of people say that reagan made the deciding push. i mean, reagan was the one that made the big difference by calling republican members and writing republican members that were on the fence and convinced them to do it. yeah, at some point, the survivalist wing of the nra is going to collapse simply because their only argument for having assault weapons is at the end of the day, it's either fun because they like shooting at targets with these big guns, or two, because they want to have a weapon to shoot american troops when they believe they're going to come to their door. it's a ridiculous argument. it's illogical and has no weight with middle america or with the supreme court. >> jon, you just alluded to it talking about jim baker, the jim bakers, senator manchins of this world, they have to be matched up against people like wayne lapierre. and the question has to be asked, am

of the civil war. and consider the battle of g gettysbu gettysburg. and with us to talk about it. mike barnicle, he was there and pulitzer winning historian jon meacham. by the way, he was cheering for lee. best selling author, doris kaerearns good win. let's begin with you, jon, why did gettysburg matter so much? >> it turned lee's army back and ended the invasion of the north and was the turning point of the war. at that point, though it was going to be difficult and bloody in the wilderness campaign and many many lives would be lost, in an historical perspective, that was the beginning of the end, as churchill might say, of the war. my sense, too, it resonates not only because of what happened there military in '63, but because of the words spoken there, what abraham lincoln did at that battlefield was to redefine the country, rededicate it, as he put it, to a jeff jeffersonian principle. when we look back on the civil war, it's fascinating to me that so much of our understanding of what it meant came from 1863, not from 1861. >> mike, you go to gettysburg and you see that line that marks th
